Great hiking. Greener than green. The trails were a bit muddy. We opted to stay on the more traveled roads. It was enjoyable. Heads up! Mosquitoes are treacherous. Bug spray did very little. They were less aggressive when I started explaining my political views.

I haven't skied here since I was a teenager. For the area, it's a great way to spend the day on Christmas break. I recently discovered all the trails in the area. I've lived in Sioux Falls most of my life and I've been here more this summer than I have any winter! Bring your bug spray, the gnats and mosquitoes are ferocious deep in the woods.

I bring my poodle here to hike frequently! It's fifteen minutes from my house. It's probably the nicest place to hike for a couple of hours that's not an hour's drive away. There are a nice assortment of trails to walk on!

One of the better kept places to hike. Doesn't stink half as bad as MOST trails is Sioux Falls.
